Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Hong Kong, with the annual incidence of 2962 cases in 2009. It is considered rare in men. However, mens breast tissue can also undergo malignant changes. There were a total of 17 cases of breast cancer identified in men in 2009, accounting for 0.57% among all cases. Male breast cancer was generally believed to have a poor prognosis. Patients usually presented late. It was believed to be due to the low level of awareness of patient and the low level of suspicion by physician, resulting in poorer survival statistics. However, recent studies have shown that the prognosis is similar to that of women at any given stages.
